With spring just around the corner in Snohomish, it is time for spring cleaning. While getting rid of the clutter in your home and cleaning out the shed are a great starting point on your cleaning list, give a thought to your roof which also needs some TLC. You will make sure that your roof stays in good shape for the rest of the year if you follow this Roof Spring-Cleaning Checklist.
1. Check Shingles and Flashing
Damage to your shingles and flashing can occur after a snowy winter, so you need to check for any loose or curled shingles as well as damage to the flashing. These can worsen over time, if ignored, which is why getting them seen to as soon as possible will help to extend your roof life.
2. Remove Moss and Debris
Your shingles can be severely damaged, and your gutters clogged by debris and moss. Prevent this from happening by removing all sticks and leaves from your roof and remove moss and algae with control strips.
3. Trim Overhanging Branches
Your roofing materials can be scratched, damaged or even completely removed by long branches that are hanging on your roof.
4. Clean Gutters
After all the winter rain and snow your gutters have had to contend with, you need to give them a good cleaning to be certain that water continues to properly drain off and prevent roof damage.
5. Attic Inspection
Keep your roof healthy by checking in the attic for any stains or leaks that may have appeared over the winter.
6. Hire a Professional
Winters can be harsh on your roof, and it’s possible that leaks or structural damage could possibly have occurred. The safest way to protect your home is to hire a professional to inspect your roof and make any necessary repairs.
